4/5 Good

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very nice big rooms. Comfortable bed. Just if youre cold there are no additional blankets, unfortunately, also not on request. In the noons and evenings the sewerage smalls from the badroom. Close a bus stop and for £1,80 youre within a few minutes at the center. Also on food it isnt more then 20min.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Good heating and bed was comfy. However, no housekeeping, no reception and therefore no one to talk to about your queries. There was also no soap in the bathroom and the mat used to stop you slipping in the shower/bathtub was growing mould.
